Join Association of Professional Piercers members Ryan Ouellette and Jesse Villemaire as they discuss detailed information and techniques related to piercing ear cartilage. We will discuss piercings including the daith (and its claims of migraine therapy), conch, rook, tragus, industrial and more. We will also discuss alternate placement piercings such as the faux-rook and faux-snug. Multiple styles will be explained and shown including freehand and tool techniques. Other topics discussed will include; proper jewelry selection, the importance of downsizing jewelry, aftercare / troubleshooting, anatomy and viability, and how to capitalize on new trends. Live demonstration will be used when possible.
